ButanosStop in at Paris-Madrid Grocery on Saturday July 28 at 12:30 p.m. for a paella cooking demo and rosé wine tasting.  Find out how easy it is to make a delicious paella and sample three dry rosados from Spain and France, which are a marvelous accompaniment to paella, especially on a hot day.   The cost is $5.00 per person for the demo which includes a step by step tutorial on making paella, a sample of the finished dish, and the rosé wine tasting.

Throwing a paella party just got easier.   Yesterday a shipment of two- and three-ring butanos and paella pans arrived at our shop from Spain.   If you’re making a paella for a wedding, block party, Seafair, camping trip, or just in the backyard, now is the time to pick up the combination you need.   Never tried to make it?  It’s easy to prepare and guests salivate as they watch the preparation.   Come to our demo and learn how to make it!

Garcima L-60 paella burnerWe’ve got burners and pans that serve six people up to eighty five, including the “L” series burner which puts out extra heat and is the choice of many of our caterers. The “L” stands for “lateral”, meaning that rather than a single row of gas jets running along the top of each ring, the jets run along the sides of the rings, essentially doubling the number of jets and increasing the overall firepower of the burner. In addition, there is an extra ring in the center to ensure completely even heat coverage across the full cooking surface of your pan.
As with all of our multi-ring burners, the rings are controlled independently, allowing for multiple sizes of pans to be used.   We recommend using the reinforced legs which best support the weight of the unit and ingredients.   And don’t forget your regulator hose!    Questions?   Stop by and ask for help!   We’re here to explain all of the options.

We now have a wide range of paella pans in carbon steel and enamel.   For a complete list of our paella pans in stock and prices, go to our website (parismadridgrocery.com) and click on the “Order & Pick Up”  button.  Scroll down to paella pans.  Prices and sizes are listed by carbon steel, enamel, and stainless steel.

paella kitThe shop is well stocked with paella ingredients, including short-grain Valencia, Bomba, and Calasparra rice, all from Spain.  We’ve got one- and five-kilo bags of Valencian and Bomba rice, as well as Spanish chorizo, piquillo peppers, Aneto broths made in Barcelona, Spanish saffron, and other essentials.   We’ll recommend appropriate wines to accompany your paella, depending on which ingredients are going into your preparation.

We hope to see you on Saturday!    Sharon
